GOP's best hope: Obama overreaches or underachieves

Like Cheney out there warning of another 9/11 not that Obama is in the White House, the GOP is just hoping and praying for something to happen to change their luck. And if you think Dick isn't hoping for an attack, even a small one, you haven't really been paying attention.

The GOP is bankrupt. All they can do now is to keep their fingers cross and hope Obama screws up of a screw up can be laid at his feet by their spin machine. This is all they have left.

"We are getting ready for a comeback," said Saul Anuzis, a former chairman of the Grand Old Party in Michigan. "The Obama administration and the Democrats will overstep their bounds in terms of their election mandate."

"If the American people perceive overreaching or underachieving in the Obama administration and among its allies in Congress, the Republican way may prove very attractive again in very short order," former Republican Sen. Howard Baker of Tennessee said in a recent essay published in The Washington Post. "It's happened before."
